The Subject follows a successful white documentary filmmaker, Phil, dealing with the fallout from his previous film in which he captured the life of Malcolm, a young black teen caught up in a gang lifestyle. While Phil’s film earns him respect and accolades in the art world, capturing Malcolm’s brutal murder on tape has left Phil questioning himself and the ethics of his work. Now, back on the streets and with a new subject for a high-profile new series he’s producing, the documentarian discovers someone is filming his every move, but who has turned the camera on the filmmaker and why are they threatening his idyllic life?
